What is the importance of good running form? Will it really change the way you run? In the past, I have seen fast, small-framed females get injured secondary to poor running form and, on the contrary, big guys who can run forever because of an efficient and biomechanically sound running form. Is there a correlation? Or, are there other small factors – mileage, recovery, nutrition, shoe fit, etc – that can effect one’s health status?
So, the controversial question remains – what kind of role does proper running form play when it comes to remaining injury free? What has your own experience been like when it comes to changing your running form? Has the change relieved any persistent aches and pains? Aided in any PR’s? We want to know!
